By Jim Crouch on November 8, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This excellent book offers not only a rare insight to some of the most conflicted and volatile areas of the world over the last 20-plus years, it also provides a window into the dedication of Avakian herself, for the sake of true photojournalism, and what it takes to be a National Geographic photographer. Her curiosity and sympathy for those caught in conflict, regardless of political correctness, gave me a raw view of both the terror and simple love of humanity that she brings to her craft. Visually stunning, visceral, thought provoking, leaving me wanting to understand more about my fellow humans within the Muslim world.

Windows of the Soul: My Journeys in the Muslim World

This book offers a striking view of the Muslim world through the lens of an amazing photographer who challenges our misconceptions and prejudices. Alexandra Avakian takes us on a photographic journey that questions the popular perceptions of Islam and engages the reader to see the beauty of a world many will never see in person. Her images are exquisite. Her thoughtfulness is poignant. It is a gem worth opening again and again.

Seldom does one see the level of tenacity and determination shown by photographer Alexandra Avakian to produce the images seen in "Windows of the Soul". The artistic quality of the images in commendable, but expected. The real accomplishment here is getting into place to make the images in the first place. Every time I pick up this book, and one wants to revisit it often, I'm amazed at the remarkable journey made by Avakian to bring us these insightful pictures.

Ms. Avakian's photographs speak for themselves. Photocaptions and text are almost unnecessary except I couldn't wait to read the captions to learn more! The story of her brave journey is poignant and very informative. Even if you know nothing about this part of our world, you will be revited and enlightened by this talented photojournalist's book.
